Alabama Billboard Hopes to Reach Potential Idiots Before 2012 Election
A billboard Athens, Alabama reaches out to potential idiots.
The corner of Capshaw and East Limestone Road hardly qualifies as a bustling intersection, but a nearby billboard has been getting the area attention.
The billboard reads, “If you voted for our current president in 2008 to prove you weren’t a racist, please vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you’re not an idiot. Thank you . . . Concerned Citizens of America.”
But they aren’t the only citizens that are concerned.
Local resident Lee Daniels says, “To make the statement that a vote for 2012 to prove you’re not an idiot, well that was saying, in my opinion, that whoever voted for him in ’08 was an idiot, and that’s just really inflammatory.”
Not everyone takes the billboard so seriously though.
Area resident Brandon Fall fall says, “I think it’s hilarious. I agree with every bit of it, and it makes my day every time I drive by it.”
